< Will began to realize how heavy his guitar war
At one of Colchester's pubs The Hole In The Wall, which is ironically situated next a hole in the wall originally made by the Romans when Colchester was a fortified town, three bands from all over Essex made their mark on what was to be Thames Burial's penultimate gig before calling it a day. First up was Colchester / Witham / Chelmsford mob Arise who play a combo of electronic post-hardcore with straight edge Metalcore, sure it's not conventionally new but the lads know how to mix the two together, and they did it well this night, slaying into the fans watching on and picking off those who were scattered across the pub, whether up at the bar or sitting down. Arise had delivered a damn good show despite the small stage resulting in limited movement. As soon as they got on stage it was time to leave and let the next band take the plunge, up next was Colchesterian Thrashers Dismanibus featuring new drummer Josh Moreton (formally of Kaine).
But before that I spoke to the lads on what lurks behind the Arise persona and what plans they are seeking out:
Will Price was horrified by the vocalist of Dismanibus drinking WKD Blue >
On comes Dismanibus, what a funny set this was, from the amount of jokes and funny banter the musicians delivered to the hilarious faces pulled, Dismanibus must be a colloquial term for tongue-in-cheek humour as the band were totally on form tonight. The only disappointing thing about the band tonight was that they lacked a little panache in their performance and as a result left the crowd attending questioning and moreover puzzled. However despite the lack of atmosphere that was expected to be delivered by Dismanibus, they performed to conformity, their conformity and in doing so lashed together a performance that is as good as any other performance they have done over the years, it was just that lack of panache that let them ultimately down and as the final song finished, the time had come to crumble and crack wide upon, for the Deathcore machine Thames Burial was about to murder en masse.

Stu Bridges (vocals)
Gav Chinnery (drums)
Dex Jezierski (guitars)
Kris Sawnkins (bass)
Kris left the band sometime ago but duly helped the lads out on what was a memorable night.
On what was their penultimate gig (their last being in Ipswich a week later), Thames Burial did no more and performed the set of a lifetime, leaving their emphatic song 'Necromantic' right to the end, so whilst fans were drinking up, there was a definite load of throwing up going on and during the band's set there was a hefty load of throwing down, mosh-pits galore. There set would not be the same if it was not for their ex-bassist Kristian Sawkins stepping into the breach to give Colchester one final farewell and it may be noted that the band made no mistake in giving the fans one final magnificent performance, even if they carried on into the future, the major and salient fact is there will always be one Thames Burial. Drink up, Throw Up, Throw Down. Oh and Seb was sporting his favorite t-shirt, from which can be seen in the photo above.
